Easy & Chic Baby Shower Invites!

Hosting a baby shower? Or maybe attending one and in need of a cute unique card? Well look no further, these cards and a snap to make and easy on the wallet because you get 2 card per 12″x12″ sheet of cardstock! I used SVG die cuts from my Sweet Baby SVG set (I cut them with my electronic die cutter and SCAL software) but the kit also has printable templates icon wink Easy & Chic Baby Shower Invites!

The diaper cards are my favorite! I like how quick and simple they are. After I die cut all of my card templates I used round and scallop paper punches to punch shapes from any excess paper. Then I layered my punch outs on my card as shown. I stamped “cute as a button” on the circle them stamped one of the buttons from the kit on a 1″ circle of cardstock then I clued 5 1″ circles together with the stamped button on top to make the 3-D button. I used my heavy-duty Crop-a-Dial to punch out the button holes and tied a short ribbon through before gluing it on my card. A bit of organza ribbon threaded through the slots in the front of the card finishes it off nicely.

 Another thing I love about the diaper card is the liner. I simply cut a sheet of white cardstock in quarters, cut off the corners where the leg holes in the diaper are and used a scallop border punch along those edges and along the top. Then I slipped the lined in the diaper card and trimmed the top corners to fit. You can see how to trim a 8.5″x11″ sheet of cardstock by looking at the following diagram:

The rattle cards were also quick to make, I was able to cut one diaper card and one rattle card on a 12″x12″ sheet, cutting both together saves paper. The rattle cards were stamped and layered much the same as the diaper card:

The onesie cards are a big hit! These always sell well at craft fairs so make a few extra. You can cut two from a 12″x12″ sheet of cardstock.

  1. Hi Lindsay, I love the diaper card you made, so cute with the lacey insert! My Niece has asked me to make her shower invites, so this would be perfect.

    I have a Cricut & the SCAL 2 but haven’t tried an SVG file yet, is it fairly easy to figure out? I need 50 invites so figure this might be faster.

    I was wondering how big the diaper ends up being, will it fit into an A2
    envelope? Could I get 2 from an 8.5 x 11″ or do I need a 12″ sq or cardstock?

    Thanks,
    Laurie

      Hi Laurie! The diaper cards are very easy. I got one diaper and one rattlecard from each sheet of 12″x12″ sheet of cardstock and I cut them with my cricut and scal 2. Just open scal2 and click the SVG button and select the file you want to cut. It is easy. Because of the odd shape of the diaper you can only get one diaper card per sheet but you could make all the invites diapers and cut the rattles too but give the rattles to your neice at the shower as a set of tank you cards so you don’t waste paper. If you want them to fit a standard invitation enveloipe then scale the diaper down a wee bit. I hadmade my envelopes and they were just a bit larger than standard.

      If you have any trouble sizing it just let me know and I can send you a scut2 file with it sized for you, just email me your order number so I know you purchased the set;)
      Best,
      Lindsay

    Hello Lindsay im new to cricut and i love your ralltle invitations how so i get started making them for a baby shower.

    • Hi Kim,
      To cut the invitations with a cricut machine you need SCAL, or SCAL2 or MTC software. They stopped making versions that will work with the Cricut last year after Cricut sued them so if you do not have one of the older versions of the software I’m afaid you cannot cut them with the cricut. It is an easy template to cut by hand tho and the print and cut tempates are included in the kit. I would print one on scrap cardstock then trace it on good cardstock so you can fit two to a page and get the most use from the paper. Good luck! It is a fun and easy card to make no matter how you cut it!

  5. Hi Lindsay,
    As I am new to all this and have not long started doing my own cards, my
    daughter in law has asked me to do her baby shower invitations. I don’t have
    a cricut and have never used or heard of SVG, I did however order
    the pack with the diapers, rattles etc thinking that it is a template for the
    diapers. Will I be able to use this not having a cricut.
    Regards
    Helga
